(FOX NEWS)- A couple desperate to find their lost wedding ring were saved by a kind stranger on Facebook.

Brandon Potter and his wife Debbie realized the ring was missing after a full day at the beach in Long Island, New York. When their searching failed to turn up the ring, Brandon posted to about 10 local Facebook groups as a "Hail Mary."

He was touched by the response, as so many people shared the post and showed their compassion. A few of the people who reached out had metal detectors, including Mike Jandris.

Mike said he would be there in 35 minutes. He arrived, and within 5 minutes of searching with his metal detector, they found the ring.
